Test Drive the High-Tech 2016 Tiguan in Ramapo NJ
Aggressive and bold, the 2016 Dodge Journey has a more traditional appearance than the Tiguan. The more sleek and smooth design on the exterior of the Tiguan appears to offer increased aerodynamics and streamlined experience. Under the hood, the Journey offers a 2.4-liter inline-four-cylinder engine that puts down 173 horsepower and can tow up to 1,000lbs. The Tiguan, on the other hand, has a smaller 2.0-liter inline-four-cylinder engine, but offers 200 horsepower and 2,200 lbs. of towing capacity. With a smaller engine, more impressive capability, and more modern appearance, the Tiguan outshines the Dodge's more aggressive exterior.
Looking to the interior, the spacious seating for up to five passengers in each crossover is paired with versatile cargo space in the rear. Standard V-tex Leatherette seating trim inside the Tiguan offers a more luxurious feeling than the cloth seats inside the Dodge. The Tiguan comes with standard Bluetooth compatibility, while the Dodge Journey only offers Bluetooth as an optional feature. A first-row LCD screen sits in the center console of both the Journey and the Tiguan, and each crossover has steering-wheel-mounted audio controls. The Tiguan's more immersive eight-speaker audio system outshines the six-speaker system inside the Dodge Journey. Whether it's because of the engine performance or the number of interior features, the 2016 Volkswagen Tiguan is the better deal for a crossover in 2016.
